As a people-lover and a word-lover, Jayne has never passed up an opportunity to speak in front of a crowd. Her early training through agricultural youth organization contests, 4-H and FFA, taught her to speak more professionally. After finishing high school in 1984, Jayne travelled the state full-time, speaking to various groups.
At Purdue University, she was elected Freshman Class President, allowing her to lead and speak to incoming Purdue freshmen. As a leader in the Greek system, she represented Campus Crusade for Christ, speaking in sororities about relationships.
After college, she began speaking to women’s groups and leading church retreats. She has also had the opportunity to lead a workshop at a national christian leadership conference in Denver and to introduce singer, songwriter Amy Grant. She has spoken to international audiences in China and India, but her toughest crowds were the middle school and high school classrooms where she taught Language Arts for 13 years.
When speaking, Jayne mixes humor with Bible truth as she challenges listeners to a deeper spiritual life. Topics have included discipling/mentoring, prayer, intimacy with God, Bible study, parenting, and marriage.

Jayne is a woman who walks deeply with God and is a gifted teacher and communicator. I have been richly blessed to call her a sister, friend and comrade in arms in the kingdom, and it has been my delight to partner with her in ministering to women.
~ Laurie Doden, Executive Director of En Gedi Group
Jayne has a gift of leading and teaching. She led a group of 25 women that I hosted in my home. She engaged and led us in discussion of the bible study Breaking Free. She has a rare gift of pointing back to God’s truth and did that often as she led us through the study.
